Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

If you want to be fair in that comparison then also exclude the Alps from the Swiss land area as you exclude Scotland - this is also basically empty for similar reasons. The Swiss Mittelland has a density of 450 persons / km2. England 413.

Healthcare basically applies here (EHIC or compulsory insurance if you're working here), housing you normally won't get in the UK either and social security in the UK you have to wait 5 years for under the new agreement.
Teensy bit disingeneous, look at the size of the swiss mittleland its less than a ⅓ of the country and it could be wrong, according to wiki its 380 bods per sqm. and its probably full of tolerable working people because Switzerland deports you shortly after you are no use to them....

Also 'free' health care in Switzerland, you have to go through hoops to get it here, and asking for it will get you deported the next time your pass comes up for renewal, England you just turn up at the gp and there are no consequences other than excellent health care.
